Contributions to the conference have to be submitted via Easychair
(, the name of the event there is IC2S2.

Each submission consists of an extended abstract of max 2 pages (A4). Please
give a sufficiently detailed description of your work, put at least  
one figure,
otherwise it will be difficult for the PC to assess its relevance. Short,
paper-like abstracts will not be considered. Abstracts do not need to refer to
unpublished work. If the work is published or under submission elsewhere it is
fine. We want to give to everyone the opportunity to present the most relevant
work to the topics of the conference. There will be no proceedings, but we are
exploring the possibility of having a special journal issue, where selected
contributions will be published. Authors of those contributions would  
be invited
to submit full papers after the conference. Each extended abstract will be
reviewed by two PC members. Abstracts can be submitted from September the 15th
till November 15th, 2014. We will do our best to have mostly oral  
of the selected contributions, both plenary and in parallel sessions. However,
there will be a poster session as well. During the submission process,  
you will
be asked to specify whether your contribution is intended for a)  
Plenary session
presentation, b) Parallel session presentation or c) Poster session
presentation. The final allocation of each contribution will be decided by the
Program Committee.
